Cops Get Caught Lying And Cost Their Town $75,000

 

This is actually really sad. They were so nice & respectful to those cops & you know those cops thought they were going to find something illegal in their car. I’m glad they sued & won $75k.

 

“your hands are shaking like a leaf brother even your face is” what? Mr.parker was just about the calmest person I’ve ever seen getting pulled over. Seriously impressed with Mr.Parker’s conduct throughout this.
“This is how we handle anyone who doesn’t use their turn signals.” They smelled fear and determined it was enough to act on. You know, like a predator
If Mr. Parker had tried to assert his rights during this traffic stop, I am quite certain these cops would have escalated it to something much worse and possibly violent. $75k pay day ain’t bad, but as a tax payer, I would prefer the cops do their job appropriately.
My sons have had many traffic stops in their youth. They claimed the cops were targeting them and were quite rude and unprofessional. It made my sons wonder why anyone would want to be a cop, and thought they were mentally unstable. As a female, I have never experienced what they went through, and now that they are older, they do not get pulled over like they did in their youth.
This city is corrupt to the core. The police had bad practices and the fact that the city included a gag order in the settlement goes just how deep the corruption goes. It’s all disgusting, and I was aghast when the man shook the officers’ hands at the end. It’s like thanking someone for smashing you upside the head with a baseball bat.
As someone who has passed the bar I consider myself a Constitutionalist who loves what our founding fathers gave us. I just want to express my appreciation for the work you do; I know the amount of text you have to comb over to research each of the statutes you present and the time that goes into each of these videos. Your adherence to the facts and the law are impeccable and I appreciate your efforts and the work you do. Thank you.
If a cop sees a citizen is “shaking like a leaf” the correct response is to DEFUSE the situation. Using it as an excuse to search someone is despicable.
Why did they remove him from the car for a turn signal, especially when video shows the blinker was going? This is so disturbing! The passengers do not have to identify themselves and certainly not provide a social security number! I hope these poor citizens have in the meantime educated themselves!
“Man, I just want people to be upfront and honest with me!” This is cop talk for “It doesn’t matter what you say to me, I’m not going to believe you!” This is all based on the fact that people lie! You are correct, officer, people do lie and you yourself are people!
Even if he had failed to use the turn signal, it is simply wrong that all this can be done to him.
since when did simple traffic infractions start including searches, pat downs, and invasive acts? what happened to writing a ticket and being on your way? and cops wonder why they are disliked, they create their own disdain.

>> It starts with “why are you shaking” ….it automatically sets a precedence for the cop to keep lying and adding details to make you look suspicious and/or a threat.
>> Happens everyday………………………
“This is how we conduct every traffic stop.” As a middle aged white guy, I cannot fathom getting pulled over for nothing and surrounded by aggressive police. A clear case of driving while black.
Congratulations to this wonderful family for following through on calmness and cooperation. We all know what might have happened if anything else turned negative. I was afraid the police might have planted something in their car with all that searching. Congratulations again.
4 cops show up at a false turn signal stop? Spot on with your analysis. And kudos to Parker for actually following up. Complaining here is not the same as following up. Hope they take the money and move to a better community.
This entire encounter made me feel very uncomfortable. This cop treated him like he was an armed felon from the very start and then proceeded to violate every one of the mans rights that he possibly could. This is absolutely disgusting and this officer should not be allowed to work in law enforcement.
>> This what people in the black community have been experiencing for decades
Classic profiling and nothing more. He broke zero laws and they still treat that family like they’re criminals.
>>  Imagine what that does to his son, to see that. Does that kid look at police favorably? Does he think police are there to protect and serve?

>> Let this be a lesson to anyone who has a slam-dunk case against these unconstitutional tactics by so-called “law enforcement”. Never settle out of court if one of the conditions is to keep silent. On the contrary, make a part of the settlement mandatory procedural changes and retraining. (See Jeff Gray’s channel, “Honor Your Oath Civil Rights Investigations”). His lawsuit forced mandatory 1st Amendment training and yearly remedial training over a period of years in the future. I understand if this family just wanted to settle and put this behind them and I’m glad they didn’t just ignore it.
I am so glad you’re bringing light to these issues. This very thing happened to me. An officer who had a reputation for being dirty, got behind me & put his lights on after I’d made a left turn. He had been behind me for several minutes so I made sure to stop @ the stop sign & use my turn signal. He lied & said I never used my signal when turning & then receded to search my vehicle. When he found nothing he didn’t even write me a ticket bc he knew he was lying & just let me go. I never even thought about how he’d violated my rights until I started watching your channel. This happened many years ago… I would have never thought to file a lawsuit until now. I’m glad you’re giving citizens like myself a voice & instructions on how to handle these situations.
..  I love how they settled with the restriction of speech about the department or incident … But they forget that there is an entire world watching now that can say what they want when they want !! Thanks for what you do !!
The only thing I was worried about when Mr. Parker consented to the search was the possibility of the officers planting illegal substances. I’ve seen cops do that on this channel before.
” Your hands are shaking like a leaf ” Look at what you did to this family. I’m surprised nobody’s gone into shock and have convulsions.
>> I didn’t see his hands shaking. The cop said that because it is in the script he was following for the record. They have probably done this many times the exact same way.

>>  @Mark Mixon  facts, the man didn’t look nervous and wasn’t shaking at all

>> Exactly. I love the guy was not at all shaking, it would have been reasonable to do so. Especially given the fact that he was probably aware that police were going to jack him up and try to pin something on him
>>  “And how would you react when 4 armed men surround your vehicle?”
>> Damned if you do, damned if don’t. None of those officers went in with an open minded view to the stop. Plus, that poor child has to experience the ordeal and make sense of it all. At such a young age it’s moments like that which impact your development, view of yourself/place etc. Great community policing and relations building /s
Nothing will change unless these law suit settlements come directly from the police union pension fund. That way, these settlements will affect every single officer and their bottom line. That would hopefully ignite and motivate good cops to weed out the bad cops.
The narrator says “I certainly can not fault him for prioritizing his family’s safety over his Constitutional rights“. The fact that in the United States (you know, the land of the free) this is a rational statement reflecting the reality that asserting said rights likely endangers your family is a sad truth indeed.
No camera no pay out 💯💯💯💯💯💯
“We got a failure to signal, gonna need about 5 officers for this.”
We have fostered an entire generation of citizens that are hesitant to trust law enforcement. Here’s the sad news: until we abolish qualified immunity, they will continue to oppress, and use dirty tactics, and empty these poor towns of taxpayer money and empathy.
This guy did everything right, IMO. He remained extremely polite despite being treated wrongly, he never once became upset, disrespectful, or argumentative. I’m glad they received the settlement from the dept for that awful behavior, but I would have personally pushed to remove that stipulation about criticism.
I particularly liked the one cop’s admission to the lady: “This is the way we conduct all traffic stops.”
I don’t know why the guy was trying to explain a faulty turn signal when it worked. He almost justified the cops illegal stop by admitting a problem that wasn’t there.
I love it when he says “However”
“YoUrE ShakiNg LiKe A LeAf” What do these guys expect?! They are about to violate him after making up a reason to stop him. It’s circular, the only reason he is shaking is because he knows they have the power to abuse him and he thinks they will. So they use that as a reason to abuse him. Makes me sick.
As a non-American, I’m shocked that he’s pointing out that the man is shaking. I’d be scared for my life. American police are unpredictable.

Cops lied to put him in handcuffs, but a camera caught the truth!

A Los Angeles man says he was targeted by police after he was pulled over for crossing a line in front of a stop sign; but after placing him in handcuffs and arresting the passenger in his car, a recording cellphone caught the real reason cops pulled him over.

Cop brings gun to deposition

 

Anyone who is doing a deposition on excessive force or shooting someone should NOT be able to wear a weapon. He looks like hes fighting a grin

 

I remember this incident. He straight up murdered that guy and we’d have never known apart from someone filming the cops.

 

He had his gun to protect everyone there, but who’s there to protect everyone from him?

 

The worst is the cop cannot just comply and leave his weapon outside the room. That is clear intimidation by the cop. Honestly I would have rescheduled for when he was off duty, taking up his free time and forcing him to disarm. The cop laughed about killing someone, I would be scared about pissing him off and having him shoot everyone.

 

Can’t IMAGINE how bad this cop would do with his “council” in a courtroom, if he’s this confrontational at a deposition…..this guy came in KNOWING he’s guilty and trying to find a way out. Clearly a “rules for thee but not for me” phycopath that OPINION could argue should be in jail….but FACTS at least show he should not be allowed to be a cop.

 

…..because he is the type of cop that has the mentality; “it’s this gun, badge and uniform that gives me power and respect, without it, I am nothing.”

 

That article you linked to gives much more background. This cop is clearly a cold blooded killer, but the whole department actively tried to cover this up.
This is why, in my opinion, depositions should not take place. There is no judge there to control things. Lawyers interrupting all the time, and the cop never answers anything.
Just looking at him you can tell he should not be a police officer. His disgust of the pesky citizens is very visible. Government protects government.
I’m at 8 minutes and he has yet to answer anything beyond basic questions. The amount of bickering between attorneys is sickening compared to what this guy has done.
This is what is looks like when a cop doesn’t give a damn. It’s not his money on the line. He’s not really going to lose anything.. might have to change agencies at worst.
The mannerism’s of this officer being deposed, the grins, smirks tell me that no matter what is said he’s home free and screw that fact the county will have to pay out a huge loss, its not his money its tax payer dollars so he doesn’t care at all maybe because his is armed right now and dangerous. This is for everyone police never socialize, associate with non police, they don’t attend non police picnics BBQ’s graduations birthdays party’s for all ages restaurants and some bars if they are not police connected and that’s a FACT! How in Gods name can this officer forget so much, can’t remember, didn’t know the rules of police policy, how is this possible?
It amazes me how cops are never prosecuted under title 18 U S.C. sections 241 and 242 and held accountable for their crimes.

Comments:

Look at the zeal with which he seeks to find suspicion in an ordinary person’s response to being approached with his level of aggression. Look at how thoroughly his desire to enforce drug busts—which are both profitable and valuable to him as a career move—corrupts his ability to to do his job properly. This entire situation is a ruse to bust someone for drugs. It has no legitimate traffic-enforcement purpose.

On top of that, there’s no actual complaint or meaningful indication of drug activity. This cop just pulled over some guy for a common, minor traffic thing and decided to turn his day into a nightmare, on the excuse that he reacted in a totally reasonable way (nervousness, invoking his rights) to a trap the cops manufactured to go fishing. The truth is that it wouldn’t matter how he reacted. They’d find an excuse to run the dog either way. This young man did exactly the right thing by invoking his rights.

On the cop’s own word, he doesn’t care about the traffic offenses in the least—even though he should, as traffic control is an important function that protects the public. He also doesn’t care about the rights of private citizens—arguably the most important function of his job—as evidenced by his willingness to play out this pretext to bully people into vehicle searches that contravene the spirit of the Fourth Amendment.

I know it sounds extreme, but if the justice system itself won’t fix problems like this, our only peaceful option as individual citizens is to document the abuses and then avoid cities with police like this at all costs. It’s a slow bleed, but it will work. Starve them of taxes, tourism, and fines. Pressure the local government to fix the problem or watch itself gradually turn into a ghost town.

 

  • If any “thin blue line” fanboys are reading this….and still wonder why some of us don’t blindly admire cops…this video is one of the reasons why.

 

  • As a law abiding citizen, I’ve always resented that fact that I feel intimidated every time I see the police, LEO’s need to learn that their job is to protect and serve, it seems these days they’re more concerned with being sneaky and trying to shaft anyone they can because they noticed your brake light burned out before u could.
  • It’s unbelievable how there continues to be all these cops that don’t realize how much they terrify people with their very presence alone.
    • People are terrified for good reason!!! These agents of the state are dangerous!!

 

    • They absolutely realize that they intimidate community members that’s why they do it! They got off on this power trip.
    • I think they know exactly the effect they have on people, they just play dumb and abuse the fact that their victims are nervous and jittery

 

    • There is literally CASE law (I do not know it off hand) that says a little nervousness DURING a traffic stop is PERFECTLY NORMAL.
  • Typical copspeak/reaction. I got pulled over on the BW parkway once. As the cop was walking back to his car to run my ID, I yelled to him some pertinent info he needed. He ran back to my car and tried to say I was being aggressive for yelling. Sir, we’re next to a busy roadway, you wouldn’t hear a whisper.

 

  • He complies carefully with all their orders, they guilt-trip him for doing so, then they pull him out of the car without his consent, take away his cell phone after they said he could record, then keep telling him “You’re not in any kind of trouble”, as they handcuff him. Well that’s reassuring, and a great way to treat someone who’s “not in trouble”.
  • I can’t put into words how much this makes my blood boil. This could have been anyone here in the comments that it happens to. I do give the victim here an “A” for refusing to answer questions, and sticking to his right to not answer questions. If he follows up with an 18 USC 242 and 18 USC 241 federal lawsuit, I would promote that to an A+ Being nervous or sweating or fidgeting is no grounds for reasonable suspicion during a traffic stop: US V CHAVEZ VALENZUELA.

 

  • Ha, I got stopped a few weeks back, riding on my road bike for not yielding to a cop on a bike stop, coming down a bike trail! Yes, a bike stop, where there are Yield to pedestrians/cyclists signs everywhere. The guy got off his suv pretty aggressive & demanded for an I.D, like I had just ran a red light on a car. He kept demanding for my name or else he was going to write me a ticket, take me to jail & impound my $4,000 road bike. And I had read somewhere that cops can auction off your bike after 24 hours. Next thing I know, I had three cops pull up out of nowhere, one of them wanted to search me, but I did not consent & he backed off. I gave the aggressive cop my name. He goes back to his suv, 5 minutes later, he returned huffing & puffing & told me to, “Get the fu– out of here!”, in a scolding manner. I live like a block away from the local bike trail. I was shook. I’m 6’4 & built like a football player, but this skinny prick had the baseballs to speak to me like a school bully. The badge seems to give these cops a sense of “power” & entitlement. I did talk to a friend who is a lawyer, but since I did not get their name & badge numbers, I had nothing to persue. A month later & i’m still pissed about it. I worked my butt off to buy that bike. I was more scared of these pricks messing with my bike, than I had of going to jail. 🤣
  •  @Kermit Of War  Start wearing a GoPro when you’re on your bike for multiple reasons. It’s funny how different these clowns act when they know you’re recording them. Record every interaction you have with the Police for your safety and TRUTH, not their version of the event as they lie in their reports.
  • Officer: “I’m not forcing you to answer my questions” also Officer: “Answer my questions or I put you under arrest.”
  • “You got license and registration” “Why are you reaching” Garbage cop should lose his qualified immunity.
  • “I don’t consent to searches” “I dont wanna answer any questions” He’s exercising his rights and then they try to guilt him as if he’s “making them nervous” (the ones with the guns 💀), gaslight him and act like they arent pushing him on these things, this guys are on a power trip and crazy
  • “Get me your license and registration sir.” reaches for documents “What are you reaching around for? You got guns? Turn off your vehicle!” reaches for key “Why are you reaching around? Undo your seatbelt!” reaches for seatbelt “Stop reaching around!”
  • When I went through the police academy, the instructors always told us, “Laws are made to protect police officers.” It was detestable then and just as detestable now. I thank God I was smart enough to throw that career in the trash.

 

  • They asked him for his license, registration, proof of registration. Then accused him of reaching for something! If they are that terrified of a guy in that situation they should find another line of work!
  • I hate seeing this happen to people. I have been pulled over a few times in my life and each time I get extremely nervous and get a bad adrenaline rush. So much so that isn’t visible to the officers and I have been asked “why are you so nervous” it’s one of the most terrifying questions I have ever been asked by a police officer and even though I didn’t have anything to hide I still couldn’t explain to an officer why I was freaking out so bad, and IM WHITE, and I grew up with a father for a cop. If this is how I feel during a traffic stop then I can’t even begin to image how people of minorities, or other races feel during police interactions. My heart goes out to you and I truly hope that the police in this country get a serious reconstruction because this system is messed up.

 

  • “It’s not a big deal”, says the cop, while he’s making it a big deal. “Get your license and registration for me” says the cop who then wonders why the suspect is “reaching around “ for his license and registration.
  • “We’re looking for guns and narcotics” “you pulled me over for guns and narcotics?” “No” lol these corrupt cops are something else
  • “Roll your window updown.” “You got your license and registration? Why you reaching around all crazy?” Can’t even go 15 seconds into the encounter without cops doing things to intentionally confuse the citizen so they can make a mountain out of a molehill.

 

  • “Your not in any kind of trouble”
  • immediately cuff’s him, searches him, calls the drug dog, rips apart the car searching everything Yup, no trouble at all.
  • “You’re making me nervous” -the fully armed and armored person with another identically outfitted guy on his side talking to the unarmed guy he just detained for “reaching around” after being asked for his registration.
  • “You’re making me nervous” -the fully armed and armored person with another identically outfitted guy on his side talking to the unarmed guy he just detained for “reaching around” after being asked for his registration.
  • “he was acting weird” “I smelled drugs” Got to love the many completely unprovable claims cops can make to just trample over your rights.
    • It’s much easier to jump to conclusions when one already has a preconceived notion, as these LEOs have demonstrated It is the basis of prejudice.
    • Statements made with probable deniability gives them an out.
    • exactly and these ridiculous laws that give them discretion that clearly violates citizens rights
  • You know what also separates the community from law enforcement? Standing around while an active shooter runs through an elementary school, attack parents who want to get their kids, and then troopers get on the news and try to justify those actions.
  • this encounter hasn’t “tainted his view towards police officers”. It has set it straight, once and for all.

 

  • “Do you have license and registration, why are you reaching around so crazy?” That reminds me a lot of that video of the guy who was shot dead by the officer that was giving him multiple conflicting orders. “Get on the ground, don’t move, crawl towards me”. Forgot his name but this made me really upset that this officer did almost the same thing, like he was looking for an excuse to paint him as being aggressive to escalate the situation. Such scumbag cops
    • Once the officer accused him of reaching around when he was following the officers request I lost all trust in the officer.
  • As soon as I heard the cops say they were bringing in a drug dog, I knew that the dog would “find” something. Isn’t it amazing how that happens! You can tell that these cops have had practice shaking down people. People like these cops should not be in that job. They are not there to protect and serve, they are only there to serve themselves by playing these games as a way to gain favor from their bosses to advance their career.
This guy is a lawyer’s dream client. Asserts his rights, remains calm and refuses to answer questions. Well done sir.
They badgered him from the start, he didn’t know which way was up or down but managed to keep calm.
 @kareem Spaulding  I’m so sorry you went through this, but I know I not alone in my admiration of you; the way you handled these fucks – and especially the way you handled yourself – would take some serious strength, self-control, and a calm and knowledgeable mind.
 @Calamity  it come from experience and knowledge
 @kareem Spaulding  It’s sad that you’ve had to build these abilities. I hope at least this turns out for you
 @Calamity  well I move on from this like 4 years ago but it was a learning experience for sure

 

 

 

The cop literally told him to roll his window up, then down, then all the windows down, and he complied with every demand. Then asked for license and registration and he went to get them and they say “he was reaching around and acting nervous”… Then the cop admitted to what there real intent was for the stop. This is a slam dunk violation of this man’s constitutional rights. The worst part is the cops legitimately believe they were in the right, even with it all ve recorded. Not even unbelievable anymore either, and that’s just f’ing sad.
  • Actually it’s not technically. The police are allowed to lie it’s some stupid Supreme Court case (yes unconstitutional but in America gov can do whatever they wat )
  • Don’t forget that the cop (I’ll edit the timestamp in) admitted that Spalding’s refusal to answer questions played a part in his decision to search the car. That’s a violation of his fifth amendment rights.
  • Edit: it’s at 6:55
  • Police officers are not allowed to tell any lie they want! They are limited by situation, purpose, and even permission.
  •  @Matt Boyd  First, Fourth and Fifth Amendment Rights were Violated.
  • When i was homeless i was sleeping outside in the cold winter. A cop wake me up with a kick in the ribs, told me gtfo or he would break my legs, then i get up to leave and the other cop threw me on the groud because i was “fleeing the scene”.
  • I don’t get pulled over often. But when I do I clearly explain that I’m carrying a firearm on my body and that I have another in my center console immediately. Sometimes the officer is cool with it. I have had a couple that were extremely nervous that made me nervous. Also had a cop draw down on me when I told them I was armed.
  • I don’t always agree with your conclusions, but yeah, you are spot on with this one. Those are bad cops, through and through, and they bring a dark stain upon the badge.
  • “I’m being straight-up with you” says cop, in the middle of lying, while under the protection of being able to lie as a legal tactic.
  • I’m starting to see the pattern now. Approach vehicle….start throwing out multiple commands as fast as possible. This throws the subject off balance. The suspect starts to get more and more nervous. They get more apprehensive. This reinforces the cops justification to yank them out of the car because the suspect can’t rationally follow the string of commands being spat at them. This is by design. THIS is what needs to change. The police know how to illicit the responses they need to invade however they want. Tag team commands also over complicate. One issues a command, suspect starts to obey, second cop issues conflicting order right after. This gives the illusion of failing to comply. “License and registration”…suspect begins to reach….second cop “What are you reaching around for?” BANG! suspicion achievement unlocked. This is a routine that these two cops have rehearsed and executed for a LONG time.

 

  • From :46 seconds to 1:36 the officers give 16 conflicting commands and ask 4 questions without waiting for an answer. This is very reminiscent of the Daniel Shaver murder. Luckily it didn’t play out that way this time.
  • Not only multiple commands, but contradictory commands as well. The cop told him to roll the window UP, then down. The guy literally did exactly what they told him to do, and somehow that is “suspicious”…
  • these tactics are taught. look up “verbal judo” on YouTube. you will find the guy who taught police how to do this, around the country, for decades. this ish is taught!
  • Don’t forget using the threat of issuing a ticket for the original pull over as leverage to progress their agenda.
  • It’s infuriating to watch how these cops use their authority to manipulate every act of compliance by this gentleman into a “suspicious” activity weaponized against him
  • I’ve always found it interesting how using a K9 to get probable cause to search a car is admissible even if the average in-field performance drops to 57% accuracy.
  • If he gets scared when people reach for the documents he asked for, he is a danger to people and unfit for the job.
    • It’s a game. He is reading a script to the microphone. He can say later he was worried, and his proof is his own recorded comments.
    • They all say that in almost every single interaction police have they say, “Im scared, for my saftey,” etc, its a part of the game they play.
  • Except it is video recorded. If I filmed an empty parking lot and said see that red car drive by? And there is no red car a judge or anyone would see my words do not match the action I am describing. If the officer is nervous about a man complying and doing nothing weird or wrong then he does not need to be a cop. That is like a firefighter afraid to go in the fire…uncalled for and until everyone presses charges/files complaints it will continue. We know there are good policemen but the that doesn’t mean we can ignore the bad ones.

 

  •  @Shelley Mackey Spence  I think we all know the cop was never once nervous during the whole encounter. There’s no need to explain the irony of a nervous cop. It’s clearly all word games for the camera to justify his dirty actions.

 

  • God I’m so disgusted by this. At what point do we fight back against these unlawful detentions? I want so badly to start seeing people defend themselves from being accosted like this. These cops deserve to lose their jobs, or allowed to continue them long enough for someone to humiliate, assault, terrify, and harass them.
  • When law enforcement says that you are not in trouble while continuing to find a reason to escalate it you know you’re in trouble, handled perfectly by this gentleman IMHO and the ticket was likely retaliatory when he could have just as easily have issued a couple of warnings and as for the court system it’s been corrupted beyond belief from the founders intentions by tyrannical leadership currently in full force in our nation.
  • I’m extremely happy that you went over the problems of using a dog to escalate the stop! As a dog Trainer myself I’ve been saying this for years
  • as a supporter of good LEOS, there just continues to be a failure of common sense of how much better these situations could go without them instantly escalating every single situation.
  • Drug dogs are just a way to bypass reasonable suspicion and perform illegal searches.
  • I was harassed by deputies at my home when someone called police on me for no reason. I believe they had body cams. When I talked to lawyers , they refused to take my case saying they don’t want to get in fight with local sheriff office even they acknowledged that they don’t wrong to me. My question is how I can start process for those cops to get justice and bring them in courts ?
  • The man was caught very off guard, as a motor vehicle driver every time you plan to go out, you must rehearse your lines, lol… / like yeah judge Jonathan Kurlnad told me to carry my docs in my visor, LMAO their faces priceless…
  •  @Tom Orr  Dude do you fucking live in the same world we do? As soon as those cops got out and approached from both sides at once I was terrified for this man. They behaved like predators from zero, escalating at every opportunity until they had him out of the car and on the sidewalk.
  • “Is there anything illegal in the car?” This is a trap because there’s no correct answer. Remaining silent causes the police to become concerned. If the man answered “Yes” that would obviously cause the police to be concerned also. And answering “No” would clearly be cause for concern that he may be lying.
  • I’ve been in this situation before. Multiple cops start asking you questions so fast you can’t answer and give you conflicting orders. The goal is to keep you off balance and make sure that no matter what you do, you’re refusing to answer questions or comply with their orders so they can escalate the situation.
If “acting funny” is probable cause, then every cop in America should be under suspicion of committing a crime
  • The very escalation into a search for two minor traffic infractions is one of the many reasons he was nervous and distrustful. It amazes me how a person, who is already fearful and suspicious of cops’ motives, is told to relax, don’t be afraid. B.S.! This whole interaction emphasizes why we don’t trust you.
  • We’re just gonna ignore he fact that the one officer said he was gonna arrest him for merely having “sovereign citizen” literature in his car? This officer is a dangerous tyrant.
  • The cops had to show him who has the most power. They always got to show their strength.
  • It’s absolutely amazing that cops routinely say things that amount to “you have rights, but if you use them then we will do X.” If you can’t freely use your rights they are not rights…Sadly this conservative Supreme Court has mangled the case law so much that a cop really has to say and do something dumb to not have legal grounds to do almost anything. Fortunately, there are some very stupid cops who can’t even stay within the bounds of a standard that already grants them such wide latitude.
  1. It’s absolutely insane to me how the Police are the ones acting scared, lying to incriminate a innocent man, and immediately come to the car and claim HE is the one acting strange.
  • Being “nervous” is completely up to their discretion. I can’t understand how they think that’s legal. They live talking about their safety, but will pull you over on a 70mph roadway with speeding traffic, 2 in away for a minor headlight or equip violation.
  • Can a citizen who is stopped use the, “I feared for my life,” and the, “I had to make a split-second decision,” defenses?
  • police always say “There is no reason for you to be acting like this” when they are the ones acting all insane “ROLL THE WINDOW UP ROLL IT DOWN”
  • These cops were extremely aggressive right from the start, it was mostly a fishing expedition and a very terrifying one at that.

 

  • “I just want to record this” “That’s fine” immediately takes the phone out of his hand to prevent him from recording. Cops are scum.
  • 1:30: How can a cop approach someone like this cop did and then dare to act like it’s weird that he seems nervous? You have him cornered and surrounded, and in the first minute of the encounter you’ve already given him 6 different orders, some of them conflicting with each other. Several of the orders were barked at him repeatedly before he could even process what you’d said. The way you’re speaking would make anyone nervous even if you weren’t carrying a gun and wearing an “I can get away with anything” costume.
  • Not answering questions gets these freak cops nervous and ready to claim “uncooperative” what a bunch of BS
  • When the first cop said “I’m going to read him”, that means he intended to read Mr Spalding his Miranda Rights and potentially place him under arrest – with no justification or reasonable suspicion whatsoever. We need to eliminate qualified immunity yesterday.
  • This same thing happened to me. I actually refused to reach for anything cause I could see one officer was nervous and twitchy with his hands on his gun. I was pulled over for expired temp tags. Ended up getting the car towed cause I wouldn’t consent to a search of the car.
  • He should said “I want my ticket for speeding and illegal lane change”, and said nothing else. As soon as he gets the tickets the stop is over by law. Anything else after that not be held against him as he was detained after the main reason for the stop.
  • I saw this a while ago on another channel and it made my blood boil. The only person acting funny is the drivers side cop with how jumpy he is and blurting out all kinds of orders and questions. I couldn’t believe how much the drivers side officer was intentionally trying to escalate the situation.
  • I know it was going bad from jump when the cops wanted him to roll down ALL his windows. The guy also needs to bone up on his rights. He has a basic idea; but needs to be educate himself more.
  • “You switched lanes in the intersection & were going 51 in a 35, but I don’t want to give you tickets.” Translates to “I’m copsplaining for the camera because I’m about to violate your constitutional rights and or slap you with some false charges after conducting an illegal search.”
  • “I would just finish the ticket, and call it a day.” In other words he’s saying, “Damn, sucks we couldn’t find anything to stick him with, so let’s just let this one go! 🙄
  • 6:50 Just because you don’t exercise your constitutional right not to self incriminate doesn’t mean others can’t. Police officers are so sensitive that anytime someone does not answer questions, they take that as resisting/combative.

 

  • love how cops will pull loop holes with dogs when denied consent. “can I search your car?” no “fuck you I’m gonna get a dog that’s trained to receive treats when it sits next to cars or on command with documented 80% failure rates so I can do it anyway.”

 

  • When the cop says “if someone pulled me over id say no theres nothing illegal” what this cop doesnt understand is he would never be stopped under the same pretenses as he stopped this man for. You can tell this guy being “weird”is him not wanting to give up his rights cause he went from 0 to losing in a matter of seconds with these cops. And they treat citizens like this multiple times on a daily basis across the nation. time4change
  • It blows my mind dogs alert is legal. It is so damn easy to have the dog alert and they keep no stats on how often drugs weren’t found. It is just a super easy loophole for cops to violate your rights.
  • The officer ADMITTED he was looking for guns and drugs and that was the reason for the stop. I’ll bet when his (edit: CIVIL) attorney gets going on this, the city’s own street cameras will show he never did anything wrong to be stopped in the first place.
  • They’d pull the “why are you nervous?!” Shit on me when I was a 16 year old kid and I thought the worst thing was they could give me a ticket. I’d literally be scared of getting a ticket and they’re flipping the fuck out like this. Then I had a Halloween mask in my trunk from Halloween so I’m “robbing houses” like where do they make these leaps. Oh I also forgot I had a fishing tackle box (full of roadside safety things like flares and all the shit they tell you that you need in drivers Ed) and that makes me a drug dealer. Cuz apparently drug dealers keep tackleboxes in their cars? I mean what kind of mental gymnastics do they need to do to make leaps like that? “There’s no reason for you to act like this” well normal people don’t do well with just being yanked out of their car and manhandled. And I don’t wanna say racist but I feel like that would’ve been less likely if he was white. I pass for white but when I was younger you could tell I was Hispanic. And I’d be in the passenger seat with my white friend (who was a total idiot and troublemaker btw) and I’d be polite saying yes sir no sir to them. And he’d be talking to them like they’re the biggest idiots wasting his time. And they’d fuck with ME! Meanwhile he’s the driver and they’re being so nice to him. My other friend she had the exact same experience too. So I also learned just talk to them like they’re idiots. The one time I did that they let me go with a warning. All the other times they’d see how much they could fuck with me.
  • My goodness these cops escalate quickly. Far too quickly for a reasonable person to follow instructions. They to go “you are making me nervous” way too quickly.
  • I think that if a cop conducts a search because he “smelled” contraband, saw shake, a dog alerted or stuff like that and nothing is found there should be consequences, and they should be open up to Constitutional violations. Because if they claim to detect these things and none us found that kinda suggests a lie or manipulation of the situation to get a search, doesn’t it?
  • Officer also stated that as long as he is made waiting for the dog he’s going to be writing tickets. Since it could take awhile for a dog to arrive it is fair that this is a threat of false tickets being written during this scare tactic!!!
  • The fact that you appear to have an unending supply of these types of police encounters makes me think your police in America are corrupt and unworthy of the role of police officer.
  • And of course officers faced no consequences for doing this and went on to continue to do it in the future without being challenged. This is the kind of degrading treatment people face constantly especially minorities by racist cops who interpret anything a minority might do as suspicious.
  • A neighbor of mine is a state trooper. He has his DRE certification – Drug Recognition Expert. Every driver that pisses him off gets his light in their eyes. Then they get arrested for being under the influence of opioids because when you’re under the influence of opioids your pupils constrict. Even though he KNOWS the light constricts their pupils he arrests them anyway and swears in court that their pupils were constricted and that’s a sign of opioid use. Never piss off a cop. They have 1000 ways to violate your rights and they will do it in a second!
  • Based on that guys reaction to all this, I suspect this is not the first time it’s happened.
  • A total fishing expedition. And their actions show just that! Hopefully one day law enforcement will be he’d to the same standards that the citizens are held to.
  • Soon as the officer talked about roll the windows all the way down I already knew what type of situation this was about to be. You don’t legally have to do that. There’s no laws that require you to roll all the windows down without reasonable suspicion
  • Don’t forget about that inhuman tactic of making people sit on the ground.
  • What continues to baffle me is how police can do this sort of thing, then pretend to be surprised that people don’t trust them and believe police are going to harm them or trump up false charges no matter what they say or do. If police really are that unaware of the direct consequences of their own actions, then it’s an active public danger to give them weapons and permission to use them.
  • Sadly, both of these officers were doing precisely what they’ve been trained to do in accordance with departmental policy. So much for “justice” in America.
  • In California, you can switch lanes in the middle of an intersection. I found that out when I went to traffic school several decades ago.
  • This is reminds me of the Orlando in the 80s when the cops were out of control and the cops were planting evidence on people and in their property also once they got you charged with something within months they were arrested again and again when most people get pulled over they get nervous and or upset either with the cops or themselves

“Fruits of the Poisonous Tree”

As a retired Police Officer, I can tell you that the speeding citation will be tossed. I don’t care about his “well calibrated” Police cruiser, because you’re still required to pace the speeding vehicle at least one mile without losing or gaining distance. I heard a Judge once ask a state Trooper who tried to pull this stunt,;
“you’re telling the court…. with your calibrated eyeballs you clocked him at this rate of speed?!”

From the aggressive bullying by these officers, I’m fairly sure that the pacing did not happen. Improper Lane change in the intersection? Their PC for stopping this man is suspect at best.

This foolishness of pulling people over just because you can is dangerous! This traffic stop is pregnant for a disaster. He could have shot them or vice-versa.

 

  • Mandatory body cams have proven to be a huge leap in justice. It tends to work against law enforcement
  • I have been saying since forever that it is the GRAY area of the law that allows officers to continue to be corrupt and downright dishonest and abusing rights over and over,he SHOULD be allowed to sue the individual officers and not the system as these officers should be held accountable for their actions and not hide behind their badge.
  • I hope he sues…. They can’t extend the stop to wait for a dog.
  • What happened to traffic stops, that actually have to deal with traffic. You get pulled over, cop tells you why he stopped you, ask you for your information, run a check, give you back you property, and send you on your way. No one gets threatened, injured, or worse, killed, because of over zealous cops. This is so much more than just a traffic stop.
  • I like how saying “I’m not answering questions” is seen as suspicious so they call the K-9 unit even tho the right to remain silent can’t be seen as incriminating
  • “ We want to make sure we go home safely. That’s the key to this whole thing”. Obviously doesn’t matter if the school children don’t go home safely, you bunch of cowards.

 

  • okay so when he says he’s looking for narcotics and fire arms my interpretation was he’s not worried about ticketing minor offenses. obviously you’d judge someone you pull over and if you suspect more you go from there. therefore that’s not pretext
Oh sad to see this so close to home. I live no more than 15 minutes from where this happened
🌼These new cameras that people have in their cars on the rear view mirror will catch a lot of predatory cops. Taking the cell phones away won’t prevent people from recording once these become common.

Wow, they are intentionally escalating everything they possibly can. They are playing, I’m the Good Guy, and I’m Your Friend. Neither is true. This is a guy with power, and he knows how to use it, so he’s going to twist everything he can, to get what he wants. You have no rights while this guy is near you, and I would imagine police hq would agree with that, and with everything he does.

The driver has every reason to be scared of these guys, and yes, they have guns, and it’s takes a second to have that gun out, and killing you. So, the fact that it isn’t in their hand means nothing at all. Just the fact that cops are still acting like this, after everything that has happened in the last few years, is really a problem.

They are actually using the fact, that anyone would be nervous of cops as reason to invade your privacy, and do what they want, in the guise of your being suspicious, because your nervous. Like anyone can really stay completely calm around cops acting like they are. It’s a really shady way to do justice.

The ones actually acting suspicious, are the cops. They are screaming, Don’t Trust Us!!!

This was a fishing expedition, like most police stops like this. They do their best to Escalate anything they can, to give you a ticket, or take you to jail. Either way, they want you feeding money into the system, to fight the system. They want to get you in front of a judge. Nothing else matters, because police do no wrongs, and they never lie.

 

  • Seems you need to learn how to hand your licence and registration to a cop without actually physically handing your licence and registration to them, in case it scares them……
  • So tough these cops are. Now imagine if they can be that tough in an active shooter scenario.
  • If a police dog is brought in and alerts on your vehicle, leading to a search: should the car owner request/demand to told the dogs name, tag number etc to aid in later understanding if that specific dog was trained and certified?
  • A LARGE percentage of officers these days break the very laws they enforce. It’s sickening and “things” have to change !!!

Sadly, talking to lawyers this is EXTREMELY common. Where cops will try to delay something as much as possible to get a drug dog out there to harass someone.
What they told me is if something like that happens. Tell the officer “am I free to go”, and “I do not consent to stay here longer than a reasonable time for you to do your investigation.” Another is if they say you’re not free to go, say “please tell me when I’m free to go so I can leave. Thank you” Basically, it shows you didn’t voluntary stay there longer than needed for a normal traffic stop. It is likely, if he brought it to court with this body cam and a good lawyer. He wouldn’t have to pay a dime, and he could’ve sued for the extended time being stuck there.

From what they told me, if they pull a I smell x. You say, “can you prove in court that you smell x?” They might get PO, but basically it signals that won’t fly in court. They will most likely try to pull a drug dog, and mention “your lawyer will pull up the record of the drug dog training, and all officers involved.” Like they and others will pull BS that saying that forces them to do it. But in reality, by the time they are pulling a stunt with a drug dog or threatening it. They are going to do it no matter what you say, and fear of it not being held up in court is the only way to get them to back down.

#1: I’ll help you- the young Black man (that’s what this is all about) gets an A+++ as he did what a Judge (a relative of mine) told us to do: keep your hands on the wheel or up in plain sight, no movements unless asked to do so, simply ask why you’re being stopped, try to remain calm, let the cops know you’re going to exercise your rights, & that you don’t consent to any searches or seizures. Despite clearly doing this, he is assaulted, handcuffed, harassed, & subject to numerous rights violations during this course of racial profiling.
#2: This is the modus operandi for these cops (seen it & been thru it enough myself) and they clearly stated what their real intentions where while they used the plethora of tricks afforded them by the Courts.
#3: I thought this was going to be another young Black man murdered by cops during a traffic stop for nothing. IF you couldn’t tell, the young man was literally frightened for his life. He was confused by what they really wanted from him/their actions. Their approach, tone, & attitude let him know that “road piracy” wasn’t what this was all about. He did NOT know if he would survive this encounter.
#4: He probably can’t afford a $750/hour attorney (if he could find one) & how many of us can? He paid the ticket as he wanted to be through with this system as much as anything else. Besides, the Courts ain’t gonna listen to him even if these 2 regularly planted drugs on innocent citizens. Period.
#5: He is permanently scarred by this treatment from “those sworn to serve and protect” & will do his best to avoid them forever.

Oh, but the system loses as well. He will return to his community & add his fear and humiliation to that of his community which will continue to not trust law enforcement (exactly why should they?).

So, forget about expecting virtually any cooperation when law enforcement needs help from them.

  • Why anyone would believe that this type of “law enforcement” is either fair, okay, or sustainable is beyond me. People are beyond tired of this crap…..

 

  • I find it disappointing that when a person doesn’t jump through their hoops in assisting the officers in finding evidence to arrest them on, and politely says they won’t answer questions: the officers assume he’s some “extremist sovern citizen”.

 

  • I’ve encountered cops talking to me like that, too, except for the narcotics stuff.

 

  • ”You are not in trouble” but by jove, we are gonna make damn sure you are, if we can get our hands on you. It’s no wonder people get nervous when they get approaches by police, all over the world in these times.
  • “The blame cannot be solely placed on these officers. As the current legal framework surrounding traffic stops allows for, and often legitimizes conduct such as this.” Well stated. And watching these cops come up and immediately start with the “you’re acting strange” nonsense, makes one sick to their stomach.
  • Very common in Florida. These cops drive around looking for “narcotics and firearms” and they have no problem fabricating traffic infractions to initiate a stop. Happened to me many, many times. These particular cops were particularly polite, I’ve had them yelling and spitting in my face, threatening to plant drugs, and taking down my personal info telling me I’d better watch out, etc. The Supreme Court erred when they ruled that a dog’s nose on the exterior of a vehicle granted probable cause to search the interior of a vehicle. Hopefully one day it will be overturned, especially considering the dogs are about as reliable as a coin flip.
  • Of course, the dog had a positive reaction! Dogs always have a positive reaction, that’s how police get around the 4th amendment protections. I am frankly surprised that the cops didn’t plant any drugs so that the dog hit would make sense!

 

  • Unfortunately in my experience in 33 years of driving this is a normal traffic stop in the United States of America and I have driven in 26 of those States
  • Every single time you tell a cop you’re recording their answer is always “okay we’re recording too.” Somehow their footage always goes missing…
  • It still staggers me that officers are surprised that people are nervous around them and don’t trust them. Can it really be a shock when they treat people like this? Don’t they realise that this behaviour makes their job harder in the first place??
I am a man who believes in the law and the reasonability of everybody following the same rules as everyone else. Officers like these ones, who removed a man from his car, searched him, and put him under a threat of arrest because “hes shakey” makes me very sick.
these officers are nuts. i defend officer conduct on a daily basis, and do my best to be fair and honest in each occurance. When i see officers like this, it rips all the good that can come from law enforcement, and i hate the way officers like these treat that lawbook like their own personal strong arm.
  • They openly admitted that they were looking for any excuse to pull him over so they can look for drugs. he came right and said that they arent interested in enforcing traffic laws they just wanna find drugs and guns
  • Wish he didn’t open his car door. I don’t know why they just panicked when he did that. It just all of a sudden caused this whole thing.
Based on how the video plays out, they didnt even use the ticket to extend the stop in any way that would be reasonable.
They didnt even start the process of writing the ticket until AFTER the search was over and the ticket was handed out as punishment for using his 5th ammendment rights.
That’s why it is very important to have a body,dash camera,& gps to record evidence against police making false claims
These “officers” were behaving exactly how they were trained to behave and doing exactly what the department expects them to do. We are living in a police state and “we the People” need to end it. Hold these agencies to account and dismiss the abusive leadership and rank and file. We pay these people to do a difficult job and we should expect them to do it well or don’t do it at all.
  • Officer basically said “ You see how using your rights make us nervous?” 😂
  • my favorite part in this was when mr spalding {sorry if I misspelled it} says im gonna start recording and the cops were like nope in handcuffs u go smh record the police if they start acting shady this is how we make them responsible.
  • A good friend of mine has been training police dogs for 40 years. He said it’s a well known open secret that the dogs are trained to give false alerts with subtle commands.
    • One cop faces away and the other blocks his camera with the door at the point the dog signals. Presumably the dog handler doesn’t have a camera. Whole thing looks like a setup.
    • Anyone who has ever owned a dog knows this. Sure, they can find the baggie in the practice yard. But they get treats and make their masters happy, when they alert. It’s not hard to figure out this is just a game they use to get around the search and seizure laws.
  • DO NOT give law enforcement officers permission to go into your vehicle – to search or to retrieve your driver’s license, registration, or proof of insurance. They can plant things in your vehicle.
  • 7:48 There is no such thing as a “well-trained narcotics-detection dog”. Its as accurate as a coin flip
  • 3:10 – I won’t give you a speeding ticket if we can find some firearms or narcotics. This cop would really suck at Let’s Make A Deal. He’s also an oath breaking punk.
  • There should never be a situation where an American citizen is stopped for a minor traffic violation and the police escalate the stop into multiple made up charges. Our legislators need to stop this highway piracy. American citizens shouldn’t lose all the rights when they drive and have to live in fear.
  • “I’m thinking sovereign citizen.” that tells you exactly what this police department thing of the bill of rights
“The dog alerted because he paused.” Pausing to smell isn’t an alert, but most judges and lawyers don’t know shit about dog training.
  • First off, having to roll all the windows down so the cops can see if there’s anyone else in there and the first question they ask is “do you have any guns in the car?” says a lot about how fucked up the country is. Then the cops says the most important thing is that everyone goes home safely – FROM A STOP FOR CHANGING LANES IN AN INTERSECTION. In no other civilisied country would that even get a mention nor would the driver be handcuffed before being placed under arrest for something they’d done.
  • $197 because they have to write a ticket in order to wait for a drug dog, according to SCOTUS precedent. The officers’ behavior was disgusting, but it’s a combination of policing culture and case law that screwed this guy over. Asking him why he’s so nervous is especially disgusting to me. “Why are you shaking? It’s incredibly suspicious.” “Uhhhhh because I’m thinking that I might die from this.”

 

  • All citizens need to learn how to return the assertions of cops back on them. “You’re acting pretty funny too officer. What are you reaching for officer? I don’t know, are you behaving like a normal person during this encounter or do you not concern yourself with your own behaviors?”

 

  • Notice the cop when he asked him to step out of the car he grabbed his arm, then grabbed his phone to stop him from recording at the 1:451:46 mark. I have a few questions: do they make inside car cameras that record the inside of the car from multiple angles that will capture a cop if they try to plant evidence in your car? Also how can you tell if a cop body camera is on?
  • They had basic understanding of Constitution; instead of abiding the law, they manipulated the situation to violate citizen. So typical.
  • Laws that hold authority accountable are only valid if the citizens have the means to hold authority accountable.
  • That is sad. He seems like a legit nice guy and those cops were “pretending” to be cool but were far from it. I hope he does Sue them if nothing else to bring this to light. Thanks for another well done video🤘🏻❤️
  • How do these cops go back to their family and kids at night knowing that they themselves have committed a crime the same day ( and likely everyday) Horrible ☠️
  • As a police officer of eight years, I always appreciate your videos
  • Key to this video, cops believe the 5th Amendment is an admission of guilt or wrongdoing.
  • Police lie so often that is becomes habitual and feels perfectly natural to them.I cringe whenever I hear Police saying “Stop Resisting” when the video clearly shows that there is no resisting going on.
  • Why would you say his view was tainted? These officers are the product of their system. His view is perfectly aligned now with what the system wants to enforce: never talk to cops, never help, never ask for help, never engage with them outside the presence of your attorney.
  • Are records kept by any given police department that keep track of how many times a K-9 unit alerts, but nothing is found? THAT would be most interesting to research.
  • Cop “Your acting all nervous, reaching around, rolling up your windows..” Later same cop “You’re making me nervous.”
  • I found it rich when at the 2:01 mark the cop says “You’re not in trouble right now, you’re acting funny man. There’s no reason for you to act like this”. I respectfully disagree. If I were a young black man and two armed government sponsored gang members stopped me and immediately ordered me out of the car to prevent me from recording I would be nervous also. I thought that the young man was better than I would have been. He was told to roll down all of his windows and he complied immediately. I would have not complied and keep my doors locked. But, I am white and old. So, they wouldn’t have done the same thing to me I don’t think. In any event, this was racist as sure as I am sitting here. I guarantee if that was a young, pretty white girl with a big smile this wouldn’t have happened like this. Not in a million years. FTP now and forever. They truly earn every bit of the disdain, contempt, and hate that they get from the public.
  • We all know who these officers are serving in these situations, but who exactly do they think they’re “protecting”?
  • The sad part is that this abuse of power is so common, that Black ppl rarely see treatment like this as anything but racism. The laws that protect poor performance from cops is a problem. Mr. Spaulding did an excellent job of legally advocating for himself. Stops like these create resentment towards police.
  • Traffic stops are not used in the interest of safety, they are always a pretext for racist harassment. If the government was interested in the safety of its citizens it would have the roads designed to be safe, not selectively punish people for minor traffic violations.
  • This video just infuriates me….this is THE definition of a pre textual stop…..this driver was absolutely mistreated and the only reason the cop didn’t catch an a$$ whoopin is because he IS a cop…..disgusting law enforcement overreach
  • We are only a little way in and we already know what kind of person this cop is. If you say something about them having guns and the cop replies “do you see a gun in my hand?” You know you are in trouble.
  • Got pulled over by Everett Washington cops for doing 35.2mph in a 35mph zone. They had me in cuffs sitting on the street corner and they searched my truck and found nothing. Took it to court and got the $150 speeding ticket dismissed but I still had to pay $50 for the court fee to fight the ticket. Same cop pulled me over again for my window tint. It’s the factory tint. Gave me a $100 some odd dollar ticket for window tint and took it to court again and won but again, I had to pay another $50 for court fee to fight the ticket.

 

  • Well, this is why the guy was nervous. He had a feeling that the cops were not stopping him because of a traffic violation, they were just seeing a dude and were hoping for finding something in his car. Because of these cases, pretty much everyone becomes nervous when a cop talks to them.
    • And the likelyhood that the cops were going to create some bs and charge him with something no matter what.
    • Or, worse, planting something in the vehicle in a manner that the bodycam cannot view.
  • I’m surprised that I’m not seeing comments about the fact that one of the cops wanted to arrest him for being a “sovereign citizen” despite the fact that he didn’t use any of their talking points! He simply gave minimal comments and invoked his right to remain silent.

 

  • Cops make people nervous regardless if they have done anything or not. That should not be a reason to elevate a routine traffic stop to searching the car. I don’t blame the guy for it answering questions because they try to entrap you with those questions. Why is there more pressure on the person to be perfect at a traffic stop when the officer has the training and should know the law?
  • It saddens me to hear that towns like Uvalde are spending 40% of their budget on policing and the police end up not doing anything to prevent crimes.

 

  • You’re exactly right! This is a good example of why cops are hated. Also, I absolutely HATE that a dog can give cause to have a car searched.
  • The speeding ticket requires that the officer produce the Certifications necessary to get the speed measuring device used as admissible evidence. However, the lane change observation only requires the officer to testify under oath that what he believes he saw was a unauthorized or unnecessary move by the gentleman. In that case there is no requirement that the officer film this encounter to determine whether what he claims he saw was in fact what happened. This thin, non existent thread of evidence gives those in authority a license to ‘steal’. So, back to my first point, just who profits from the $197.00 paid by the gentleman? How is that bounty divided up?Did the dog get anything, maybe a tasty meaty bone to chew on? It seems only fair since the police were allowed to sink their teeth, so to speak, into the gentleman’s wallet. And just what average joe, or in this case a young black man, would be able to spend/afford the money to hire an attorney? Last thought, the speeding ticket would have come with points, did the lane change charge carry any points? If the answer is no, see how nice the two officers were, they did not want to see his insurance rates possibly go up, and in that case the gentleman might have felt it necessary to contest the claim in court!

 

  • Cop straight up turned the exercise of a right into probable cause. Give him a promotion.
  • Cops: immediately act aggressive, as if he’s a criminal with a gun Also cops: “why are you acting funny?” Disgusting
  • I have advice for everyone. Keep your insurance and registration paperwork in an envelope clipped to the sun visor. This way you don’t need to “go reaching around”. And always have a paper copy, as opposed to an app on your phone. If it’s on your phone you’ll be forced to “reach around” in your pocket to get it, and you’ll have to go digging around in phone to find the app which could show the officer shaking fingers or “cognitive impairment” if you can’t find it quickly. And if it’s on your phone you may need to give the officer your unlocked phone, and if you refuse to hand it over, you are now deemed “uncooperative”. Don‘t give the them an opportunity to develop Probable Cause. Lastly, if you have a dashcam or cameras mounted in the interior DO NOT tell them. Even if they find something minor, if there are any shenanigans committed by the police captured on film the court may not allow your dimebag as evidence.
  • Almost the same thing happened to me in 2018 in Lagrange, Ga. It was ridiculous, and I’ll will always have distrust in police from then on.
  • Best visual demonstration of “driving while Black”. Sad. Disappointing. SCARY. Every abusers’ best excuse, “look what you made me do”.

 

  • Best practices When being pulled over.. Especially when Black 1) Go ahead and roll all windows down ahead of time (So officer can see inside clearly) 2) Have your ID out already. You never want to put your live in some cops hands by reaching around 3) put your hands on the wheel or on the door window so they clearly see your hands Those 3 things will drastically up your chances of avoiding bullshit
  • So it wasn’t just me that noticed the driver wasn’t acting erratically. I can’t speak for everyone else but the way the officers came up to the car and were acting would’ve made me nervous as well. Then when the start assuming you’re a criminal when you know your not I wouldn’t stop talking to them as well. Those two officers are part of the problem and not the solution.
  • i like how cops use peoples fear/anxiety about cops as reasonable suspicion
  • “You’re not in any trouble” while proceeds to pat him down and handcuff him. The excuse that every officer gives that its for their safety as well as yours is bs. You can tell from the moment the officers walked to the car he was nervous af and refuse to answer questions because of what could happen. Safer to be taken to prison than interacting in public. I’d give the guy a ‘B’ to an ‘A-‘, he seemed knowledgeable enough to comply, no consenting to searches, and to remain silent.
  • Sometimes I get turned off by first amendment auditors and their sometimes confrontative nature but after watching something like this, I don’t mind them being confrontative at all.
  • Oh wow. You would have thought this guy just robbed a bank and killed someone. This guy are fishing in the wrong type of water. Why do they think people would be nervous based on their history with certain people during traffic stops.
  • Its amazing that US police are micro managed by the supreme court.
  • THey pulled him over for traffic infractions, when he looks for his information they rip him out of the car and handcuff him. They are supposed to be writing him a ticket for the infractions, and letting him go. But they escalate the situation so they can hold him and delay writing him a ticket, so they can call a K9 to smell for another LARGER charge.
  • These punk cops act like this person did something to harm them I just don’t get it. Why any agency would continue to let cops like this to be employed on the force is beyond comprehension the attitude of these so-called protect and serve people is again beyond comprehension they should be fired immediately

 

  • I’ve had this happen to me, just cruising along I40 minding my own business, then two unmarked vehicles come flying up from nowhere and pulled me over because “they didn’t see me wearing my seat belt”. They asked for license, registration, insurance, the whole spiel, and then asked if I minded if they took a look in my car. I’m not an auditor, I just wanted out of there as soon as possible, and damn sure didn’t want dogs jumping all over my car scratching it up, so I let them look. They gave me a quick pat down, took my little pocket knife for their safety of course, and I stood there with one officer while the two others went through my car front to back. When they didn’t find anything they handed me my knife back, and let me leave without a ticket or so much as a warning, totally weird experience.

 

  • Profiling, unreasonable provocation, inventing reasons to escalate, escalating and entrapment. Criminals in a Halloween uniform with weapons, given way too much power. It’s only a matter of time before they needlessly take someone’s life.

 

  • I saw the whole video and the cops were so pissy about the guy not answering questions that they kept him cuffed, implying that they’d remove them if he answered. The guy remained silent. I get why he didn’t pursue it, not wanting the hassle, but watching the whole thing was infuriating!
  • The cops’ attitude is straight from the 1950s. Rapid fire, contradictory, hyper defensive commands. Unbelievable
  • So a question. If a dog handler and a dog have an abysmal record of accuracy on alerting on a traffic stop at what point is the dog and handler put out of commission? Is there any action you can take if a dog alerts falsely in a court of law for a violation of your 4th amendments?
  • 10:43 – The officer is holding his walkie next to the mic on his body cam so it’s hard to hear what he’s saying.
  • Pretext stops are perfectly legal. However, threatening to write tickets unless consent to search is given, that is HIGHLY illegal.
  • What’s sad is those cops left that scene thinking they did everything right. What’s even sadder is their department will likely watch the video and tell them they did everything right
  • are we just not gonna talk about the sign on that CHURCH’S door? “According to our Church policy and the Bible, it is forbidden for women and young girls to wear pants inside the sanctuary.” …EXCUSE ME?! WHAT? someone PLEASE explain this
  • “You’re not in trouble right now” means you’re in deep god damn shit.
  • Pretty damn sad. Soldiers gave their lives for this citizen their sacrifice was made in vain by those officers
  • They’re doing their job. Intimidating and keeping people in their place.
  • They will keep doing it until they’re held accountable. Shit makes me feel hopeless. Can’t believe this is where we are.
  • this wasn’t the first time they did this. i heard that getting more drug bust increases the chances of a promotion. in the future, i bet they will start “finding” more illegal substances.
  • You’re reaching around, making me nervous.” Yeah, after the LEO asked for his license and registration. Quite the lesson in cop induced escalation. Meanwhile, the driver was completely chill.
  • The cop is reading a script. He wants those words to get recorded, even if the video doesn’t match.
  • and the fact they wrote him a ticket after making him sit through ALL THAT because they were still butthurt he didn’t answer their questions smh
  • I mean, once he literally admits that it’s all a pretext, it’s over for him lol. Always remember, There is no law or infraction so minor that police will not kill you or your child over and then claim officer safety. Kind of like the 19 in Texas who allowed children to be shot at and killed for an hour, while they sat outside for “officer safety”. They even admitted in a press conference that they didn’t go in because they might be shot.
  • I’m always nervous when pulled over by police. The social gap between the areas where they are assigned to is usually big! A good police will inform you of what the pull over is for. Quit taking advantage of people who know or don’t know the law. Help us and stop reaching departments quota
  • Back in the 80’s I was pulled over daily because my girlfriend was white. They would make her get out of the car and they would tell her to go home and keep me there until she was out of sight. I wasn’t speeding or breaking any traffic laws.
  • ‘You have guns and im scared’ ‘Are they in my hands?’ Cool; then by that theory.. you shouldn’t have to cuff the driver because his guns aren’t in his hands..
  • When pulled over #1 lock your doors, #2 put your window not more than half way down — far enough to pass paperwork and communicate, #3 have your paperwork ready before the officer gets to the window, #4 do not hand them your paperwork until they articulate a legitimate reason for the stop, #5 do not open your door or put other windows down all the way. If they ask you to exit the vehicle they must be able to articulate a suspected crime “your acting funny” is not a crime anymore than “you seem nervous”.
  • These cops are very good at double talk and baited words very well rehearsed that’s why they have to cops so that the cooperate the stories along with the bated words and double talk. These guys are dangerous. These are the type of cops you got to know everything about them.
  • I fight every ticket. I won 4 in a row. Half the times the cops didn’t show up. These cops are unlikely to show up in court for a traffic ticket, because they are probably on some narcotics detail. He needed to get the video. Plead innocent. Never plead no contest.
  • The footage is from the bodycam footage of the cops, which was continuously edited, as the breaks are clearly noticeableThe footage did not show the driver’s actual violation, as would have been captured on the cop’s car dashcam… There is not any footage showing anything to the claimed traffic violation… Clearly there is a lawsuit in play, being that we are seeing this on Audit the Audit… The cops violated an array of the driver’s rights, creating false narratives and outright lying… The crooked and racist courts of that jurisdiction will drag the lawsuit… This is police gang behavior, at the expense of taxpayers.
  • I think about all the times my rights were violated when I was younger by local police and didn’t know any better.
  • Prosecutor: if you don’t take the plea, I will pursue maximum sentence. Judge: has anyone threatened you or coerced you into take this plea? Me: yes Judge, the man acting as prosecutor threatened me.
  • My god the gaslighting is insane. They fumble their speech and tell him to do a multitude of things and then accuse him of reach around? Like dude you just told him to get his papers. I hope this guy got paid.
  • im going to be honest if i was stopped by a cop who said he feels nervous with his hand on his gun id be shaking too XD

 

  • Dude was handcuffed sitting on curb and the cop with back up and guns was “nervous”. Duche bag cop you make the world less safe

 

  • He never addressed the fact that the cop open the passenger door before he had any kind of excuse or permission to do so.
  • I noticed that too. Who do they think they are?
  • And people are of the belief that this type of policing works, 1 out of every 30 stops might yield some minor crap, so 29 people were just harassed after you got one with some shakes on the mat. Needs more, this is damaging the relationship the police should have with their employer

 

  • Only thing I hate more than tyrants, are tyrants in training. I recommend, as do all police that I’ve ever met, doing some ride-alongs. They are free, they do a brief background check, and you get to ride shotgun. You can literally witness this garbage first hand on every average day. Just goto the station and ask if you can ride along. You could say you’re interested in the industry, etc. This was a high on himself Narcotics tyrant feeding his new little baby tyrants the routine. They literally have task forces operating and training like this daily, in damn near every city in America, EVERY DAY. When are we going to say enough is enough and let these operators be held accountable by the law they swear an oath to uphold? If you’re a rights respecting American then your argument will always hold up in court. They are allowed to, after the stop, use the legal system to unconstitutionally detain you and your life, until you misstep or they dismiss. Dismissals should reflect negatively on officers and all other agents that detained us in a probationary status of the court system. We have a right to a speedy trial and these offenses should be PENALIZED and prosecutable.
  • I have severe ptsd from dirty cops. They beat me badly causing severe brain damage while I was having a gran mal seizure and not under arrest. They paid off “my” lawfirm to never get video footage. At least I don’t have panic attacks when I see them like I did for years.

 

  • The moment that lawsuit money starts coming out of the police’s salary packets, is the moment that this kind of behaviour is stamped out almost overnight. If a dog gives a false alert 3 times in the space of 12 months, the dog is retired and the handler fired. Bang, no more fake alerts.

 

  • I’m calling BS on the officer’s comments about searching the vehicle or him just telling him where the drugs are. As I have stated previously, I have seen nearly a hundred videos in which dogs dutifully “hit” and zero drugs were found. Maybe, the videos recommended for me are skewed somehow, but I think it more likely that the dogs are utilized improperly and/or are not well trained.
  • seems like the supreme courts are leaning more and more toward law enforcement than the victim regardless of the situation
I defend good police officers because not everyone who is a law enforcement officer is a bad guy, but I hate when I see discrimination. They were essentially trying to use the traffic violations as a bargaining tool. They stated that they were not worried about worried about traffic violations but guns and drugs. I also hate the way police officers use manipulation of the law to their advantage and treat this individual like a criminal when he did not do anything to deserve the behavior that was displayed by there officers. This type of behavior is why some people have a negative view of law enforcement. I know it is time for a change in the ways that officers are allowed to behave in these circumstances. Someone very close to me has a security system with lights and cameras at their home. When I asked him why they need so much security for their house he told me that he didn’t want law enforcement officers to knock his door down and try to steal from him. Can you believe a statement like that? He worries more about police than strangers breaking in. He had his home torn a part in a raid by police for buying a quarter ounce of Marijuana from a known drug dealer. They followed him home, knocked down the door and took everything of value from him including a shoe box with 25 thousand dollars that he had been saving for 10 years to put a down payment on a home. He was never arrested for anything and had money , 2 vehicles confiscated, and his home destroyed for nothing. His court appointed lawyer(they took all his money) said to not fight this & try to get stuff back because the police would put his name on the indictment. He got bad credit from the vehicle sezuire because they were financed. So can you blame him for his attitude?

I get a laugh out of the cops that say, “you’re shaking. Why are you nervous?” Idk, maybe because ARMED men are escalating what should be a routine traffic stop for no other reason to try and pin an actual crime on me.

Seriously, cops like this drive me insane. For the record, I’m a law-abiding citizen and even I’ll admit that I get nervous during traffic stops, even though I know I’m not doing anything wrong. Why? Just because you’re innocent doesn’t mean a cop won’t try anything funny, like planting evidence. It does happen and I actually fear the long-term repercussions of such an action more so than the “in the moment.”

There’s also one more factor to consider. It was very obvious from the search that the “suspect” drives for Uber. I can say this as a former Uber driver. I have had clientele accidentally leave and spill drugs in my vehicle that I didn’t see until the end of the day when I was done driving. What would happen if I was pulled over and they ended up calling a K-9 unit? I would get in trouble for my own clientele’s illegal behavior. I did get pulled over once while driving for Uber and it was an absolute baloney stop. Officer claimed I failed to yield at a stop sign at a right turn and I called him out on it because I HAD to stop. There was oncoming traffic coming from the left and I had to wait for that vehicle to pass through the intersection. Cop let me off with a warning but honestly, if he did site me, I would’ve FOIA’d the dash cam footage and taken it to traffic court. The cop had absolutely nothing. I had a passenger at the time too and she actually felt bad for me because she knew I didn’t do anything wrong either.

  • Even better, get your own dashcam. I don’t even want to be in a situation where I have to go to the police to get information for their own infractions.
  • I understand the officers in this situation were the ones in the wrong, but I do wish people would say, “I’d like to invoke my right to remain silent” (or something of the sort) rather than, “I don’t answer questions” in situations like these.
  • My friend is terrified of the police. She got into trouble when she was younger, that over a decade ago. The because of the bad experiences she had with police in the past, she shakes when she sees the police. When she got into an accident early this, she was shaking when the police came to question her. She did nothing wrong and did not get ticket for the crash. She was shaken the whole day.
  • These cops have a script to a tee. To get people out of the car, dude didn’t do anything wrong at all. What bull. Sniff this 🍑
  • Police often use nervousness as evidence of guilt but they induce the nervousness and should appreciate that. They clearly wanted to search his car. Imagine being handcuffed for improperly changing lanes. The dogs always hit, just the same way roadside drug tests often produce unreliable results. All of this stuff stems from our country needing to decriminalize several drugs.
  • Had a similar situation in winter springs fl way back about 2004. Florida is also a no tolerance state. But no open container charge.
  • 1:43, The Police just Committed a Crime. Assault. Assault is Defined as ANY UNWANTED PHYSICAL CONTACT. and they placed their hands on the victim and REMOVED HIM by force from his car because he was NOT permitting the officers to do a UNLAWFUL SEARCH of his Vehicle.

Police: Foot in the Door

Resident owner denies Arlington Police Officers entry into his home without a search warrant, Officers still went in.

 

You’re taught in the police academy that any entrance pass the threshold of the door is trespassing without a warrant so yes that is warrantless entry

 

This man is a damn saint for the level of patience exercised in this situation!
The only mistake he did was to open his door. Never open your door.
The reason they keep their foot in the door like that is to bait you into trying to close it so they can charge you with assault on an officer.
The way the cop just stands there while he pleads for him to leave knowing his rights, is truly disturbing
Cop puts foot in door to block resident from closing. I’m of the opinion that the resident should be allowed to close the door using however much force is necessary to achieve closing the door. The idea that cops will charge you with assault for closing a door on them is asinine. Other option is to close the door however much you can, place your foot behind the door. Then inform the cop that the same assault charge he would charge you with if you close the door applies to him if he forces the door open wider. When they stand in the hall but have their foot in the doorway, they know they have no right to enter. We should be allowed to slam the damn door even if it breaks the cops foot!
it’s crazy that our natural right to be left alone can be ignored simply because someone makes a phone call.
I’m shaking and it wasn’t even me there. This dude deserves Saint good for how he handled himself.
They are terrorizing that child, and if anyone is being irrational, it’s those cops.
They broke the threshold, that is trespassing.
He trespassed the cops and they come in anyways… Sounds like a nice lawsuit to me, plus they have to know trespass laws, so their legal immunity is blown.

>> I wonder if you noticed that he was arrested. So, before any lawsuit, he has to deal with his own charges.

>>   @vad R  charges that’ll be thrown out once the video reaches the authorities.

 @Van Iyke  The cops will undoubtedly claim exigent circumstances. One of them even pointed out that he saw some broken glass. Check out the story of James Wood in Cotati CA, couple of years ago, who also thought that he can resist officers’ warrantless entry during welfare check. The whole family was tazed and charged with obstructing, including the alleged victim; Wood was tried in court, and got off only because the jury deadlocked – half of the jury agreed that he deserved prison term. In this case it’s ten times easier because of the glass, and of the kids involved.
was wrong, he was not arrested – they verified that there was noone else in the home, and left. Here’s more complete video:
 @vad R  there was no visible harm on the child when said child presented himself, there were no sounds of the child crying, the child was not seen to be crying, the child did not ask police for help and…. Oh yeah…. almost forgot about the PRESUMPTION OF INNOCENCE ABSENT PROBABLE CAUSE of which there was NONE. You better hope your neighbors don’t hear you drop a glass and it breaks one day or you may have an army of pigs show up at your door demanding entry. Better just COMPLY CITIZEN, right?
4 ways for a cop to enter a residence:
1) Consent
2) Warrant
3) Hot pursuit
4) Exigent Circumstances
An anonymous call stating a “disturbance” does not meet the threshold for exigent circumstances.
They have no warrant, they clearly do not have consent and they are obviously not in hot pursuit.
Funny how it went from a ‘domestic disturbance’ involving “a wife” to a ‘domestic disturbance’ involving the Son”
I can’t believe bro didn’t cuss a single time 👏🏼 big props
NEVER, NEVER, NEVER, open the door for the police unless they have a warrant. Make them break down the door. Make them defend it in court.
I feel so sorry to this man and his child for having sick people in their door so scary.
This was an illegal search. The reason they didn’t just drag him out the door and detain him while they searched for the “distressed party” is because they knew there was no distressed party. They were trying to get him to agree to an open-ended search where anything found would be admissable in court. This whole charade was to try to trick him into giving permission to search. They show up claiming exigent circumstances but then waited at least 15 minutes, plenty long enough for someone to bleed to death or die from asphyxiation, drowning, OD, heart attack, stroke or any number of other causes. This didn’t disturb the officers because they knew that the exigent circumstances was merely a pretext. Exigent circumstances are exceptions for when seconds matter. By waiting 15 minutes they proved that there was no exigency. So at this point they clearly are not performing any legitimate law enforcement activity. They were very clearly asked to leave but did not do so. We are left with the inescapable conclusion that they are not acting in any official or legal capacity at all! (Though they are acting under color of law.) They had no legitimate reason to be there and they have been asked to leave and failed to do so, one of the actual examples of trespass in the Texas Penal Code! Because they are acting under color of law, this becomes Criminal Trespass. When later they do force their way in, having, by their own conduct, clearly discarded all legal rationale for their presence, TPC 9.31 is triggered, which justifies use of lethal force. These officers got lucky. If that boy had understood how wrong what was happening was, he might have feared for his and his father’s lives. He was big enough to handle an AR… Plenty of kids his size have killed intruders.
Once you heard his son is fine your wellness check is done. There is no longer any need to be there.
Never, ever open the door to cops unless you have a locked screen door or storm door between you in case you need to shut your door quickly.
This reminds us once again ” DO NOT OPEN YOUR DOOR” Better to talk through it closed and locked. Isn’t it sad to have to protect ourselves from the very people who are paid to “protect and serve “.
He was MORE than patient. Showed his son 3 times. This was very stressful just to watch…….I can’t imagine being him. His son was so scared that he started crying. When they stormed the door at the end, I started crying…….& I don’t cry easily. Police brutality.
The encounter should have ended when the child appeared. These cops are tyrants & broke the law & need to be fired & sued in civil court. The department needs to be held accountable for the actions of these officers also. I hope this man gets the justice he deserves
“We got a call…” they think that this statement gives them carte blanche to violate rights…
Someone give me more information on what happened to this father, and his child. I believe this call was the cause of a bad woman. I believe there is more to what was really going on behind that domestic call. It was clear though that he was a good man, and a protecting father.
Gwacamolle Lully: It’s always funny when people come up with this response, tax payer’s money. As soon as we the tax payers get fed up of footing the bill for police brutality and incompetence we will demand change. Until then, we will continue to pay for our lack of action. Police love using the word “right”. Officer: “We have a right to enter and check.” No sir, you are mistaken. You actually have a “duty” to check. He however, has the “right” to be secure in the home. As soon as he got his son, who’s statements will be seen as truthful and unbiased in court, to confirm the number of occupants and his well being. That should have been it. But the officers egos took over again.
Buy yourself a nice house, and a new car. Put your son through college. You deserve it, Bro!
 @Gwacamolle Lully  I am usually taking police side, but this was extreme. The guy deserves every penny he can get from them and from you, as a tax payer. I am european, so I’m good. You guys need to open your eyes widely to what happens in US and start to make some changes.
Cop is like “I don’t understand why he won’t just let me violate his rights”.
According to this, cops can just have anyone call in a residence and that will give them the right to search that residence. That is scary.
anytime you don’t let them trample all over your rights, their response is: “You’re not being rational.”
He must have told them over a 100 plus times not to enter. Unreal
I use to be a deputy for 8yrs and i can tell you i wasn’t trained like this. I was trained to follow the law. No warrant, no entry!!! Most of the cops downfalls is the department gets into this mindset and nothing gets done about it at the top!
“You can have an officer monitor my door while you go get a signed warrant”.. Why does this citizen know how to do their jobs better than them 🤔??
Security doors allow you to open your door and still have a barrier between you and whoever’s at your door.
They will interrogate the son and tell him that dad will go to prison if he doesn’t agree that dad is abusing him.
This is the reason you don’t have answer the door when you see a cop at it! They crossed the threshold this should be considered a violation of the 4th amendment. Point blank period
This was extremely disturbing to watch. This is exactly where the breakdowns of community start. I have decided never to call the police, unless specifically asked to, for fear of individuals ending up harrassed, bombarded, wounded, and at worst, DEAD. I cannot live with that on my conscious. Even if there was a Domestic Situation, some just need to get to the other side of that situation. Sadly, in either situation, calling the police or not, someone could end up dead!
Never open your door to cops unless you called them or its an emergency. When you do the first thing the do is put their foot in so you can’t close the door and if you try they arrest you for assault.
A “welfare check” does not suspend his civil rights!
No amount of money from the enevitable settled out of court case, can be enough to compensate for the trauma that poor child must have experienced when these tyrants burst into the family home!! This has boiled my piss 😤
The victim did as well as I could imagine. I’d like to see Audit the Audit show this and give us some clues how to handle the foot in the door problem with cops. If you try to close the door they arrest you for assault and yet they are trespassing. In the time they spent harassing the victim the cops could have gotten a warrant, but they don’t want to go that route because they don’t have probable cause to convince a judge to sign a warrant. Can the officers not be charged with trespassing? Are they immune from that? Time to clarify this foot in the door process.
You did a good job of stopping the cops from talking. When they start talking, you end up getting charges that they make up..!
In Texas, the law allows a few exceptions to the warrant requirement. One of these exceptions is Exigent Circumstances, sometimes referred to as “the emergency doctrine.” If they reasonably suspect that someone may be in need of medical assistance, or is otherwise in danger of harm…that qualifies. And courts have upheld that a phone call report may be satisfactory to establish reasonable suspicion. Therefor it is very likely that their Welfare Check, based on a caller reporting some domestic violence, would be enough for a court to rule that they were allowed to enter his home without a warrant. This is true even if it turns out later that the reporting caller was wrong. And at least one of the officers did try to explain Exigent Circumstances briefly before being drowned out by the man. I friggin hate it when I hear about yet another instance of, “We investigated ourselves and – shocker – find that we did nothing wrong.” But in this particular case, I’m afraid that would rightly be the outcome.
I gotta stop watching these types of videos. It makes me upset that “leo’s” believe that they can violate the God given and constitutional rights of citizens at will. When the lawsuits inevitably happen, the payouts come from the pockets of other innocent citizens rather than from those of the perpetrators. Sickening system.
This happened to me with a crazy salesman. I told him to move his foot before I shut the door, cuz if he didnt, it was gona hurt. He refused. I slammed the door. I can still hear him yelping. I think I broke it. Would do the same for unwanted cops
1) theres either a “real” threat or circumstance that makes it really necessary to go in without a warrant in that case they shouldnt talk to him for 10 minutes 2) they have no real reason, then they should all get sued
We homeschooled our six children. This kind of thing happens to homeschool families all the time. We belonged to the Homeschool Legal Defense Association when we are children were school age. We had their lawyers on speed dial to protect us against this kind of crap. It still happened to some people especially in CA. Some families won large civil rights settlements. Does anyone know if this guy came out of it okay? Where did this happen?

Show less


This is just an ego confrontation and the cops are experts at it. I guess it’s taught at the academy.
I’m from Canada. And if I took this to any, and I mean ANY lawyer, even though I could not afford them? They would take this case for free (pro bono), and they would sue the police department, the city and each individual officer. With the condition, that if we won, I would then pay for their services. This is appalling to me!! All I can say is I see one HUGE LAWSUIT coming against everyone concerned. To the father? KUDOS for holding your cool. Best Regards and Stay Safe Everyone from Ontario, Canada, Jenn
My parents demanded a warrant, the police said it’s in the car, and refused to show it, police decided to shove their way into the house, then a month later, came back and arrested my 81 year old father and 60 year old mother for assaulting an officer/obstruction of justice 3 counts because there were 3 cops.
When we get a call for service………. Obviously the cops feel all of your rights are suspended because their phone rings. I wonder how that will work out in court. The cops just keep saying listen listen listen listen when the facts are we don’t have to listen to them and we don’t have to speak to them .
The citizens, one day will use the “I feared for my life” excuse. This would have been a good time for it.
This reminds me of when I was 6-7 years old. My Father was a single parent. He was an alcoholic and heroin addict, but he never put his hands on me. Cops used to force their way in and beat the living $h.. out of my dad. They even went as far as to throw him down 5 flights of stairs. When it came to court time, these TYRANTS would lie in their report. Saying, “he fell!” I would tell court the truth, but of course they wouldn’t listen. Poor lil boy. Good old boys in blue still wondering why us people of color don’t trust them??? (I really want to go off in my comments, because this video is a trigger for me)!!!
We need to start having special doors made that automatically close at the push of a button to close the threshold of a door and sever anything that is breaking that threshold. Cops might start learning when half their foot is where it should never have been to start with.
That’s scary shit! The cop immediately tried to say he saw broken glass and stop hurting your child. Scary when law enforcement puts themselves above the law.
You should have made a citizens arrest, request that the second officer arrest the trespasser, and demand a supervisor. You provided several trespasser notices. At that point both lose qualified immunity.
This would not be happening if there was no Qualified Immunity and the police had to carry their own liability insurance!
So if there’s a call for a domestic disturbance, all the abuser has to do is say they can’t come in without a warrant? In my country, there wouldn’t have been more than 10 seconds in this situation before the cops came in. This man is responsible for his sons tears.
They are claiming extengent circumstance, but those concerns should have been relieved without entrance into the residence by 10:04 time stamp. There was clearly no threat to life or limb at that point. These cops forced their way in for no other reason than to demonstrate their dominance. They willfully escalated a routine disturbance call with criminal intent to cause harm.
Doesn’t “exigent circumstance” mean someone inside the home is in immediate danger? If they had that, they would be in the home already, IMO. Courts have traditionally let cops do almost anything, as it relates to 4th amendment violations. Cops have something like 10 ways to enter a residence without a warrant, and the courts rarely hammer them for the violations, so this guy may be able to pry a civil judgement out of the city, maybe.
This is when a door chain comes in handy. Set it up so it only opens 1/2 inch. Or better yet, get a doorbell cam with audio and put it on your door. I watched a guy argue with cops/CPS through his doorbell cam while he was actually in the background cutting his neighbour’s lawn. Hilarious.
The cops do need to investigate calls regarding a disturbance and make sure everybody is okay and I I wasn’t sure if the man being questioned was being reasonable until later in the video he told the officer that he would cooperate and keep the door open if the officer would step out of the doorway. Then I became appalled when they actually forced their way in. They should never have been in the doorway to begin with and if the man wouldn’t cooperate by at least answering questions that should be enough for reasonable suspicion to get a warrant to make sure that the man didn’t commit child or spousal abuse. From what I could tell they had no probable cause to force their way in and they should all probably be fired if that is the case.

In most states, the only way police can enter a home without a warrant, is when they have PC that a crime is “in progress”, not “may have been committed”. Don’t know the details here, but what’s obvious is these cops are blocking the door, been told to leave, are trespassing, and trying to force their way in someone’s home to search every room, drawer, toy box etc, just hoping to find anything to use against this man. This homeowner was great and I hope this worked out big for him.
I knew shit was bout to pop off when Officer Crazy Eyes strolled up. Poor baby, I hope the man and his son are doing ok now…
Sadly, this man will lose any lawsuit based on “Exigent Circumstances” (defined below) as mentioned by the Sgt. when he arrived. This is a law that police use to screw your 4th amendment. Call your congressman and demand the law be abolished.
I am not a lawyer but I believe there were some civil liberties violations here. They said they were there on a call for a domestic disturbance with a female and just because he won’t let them in to ascertain if there is one there does not give them the legal right to barge in unless they hear her cry for help. I would cite very serious fourth amendment violation concerns here.
This is main reason why I invested in a Ring device! I can still communicate with people, and don’t have to open the door to anyone Law Enforcement included.
If the police actually had the right to make entry like they claim, they would not have wasted all that time talking. They know they had no legal power there, and they know it. Also, their story flipped between “welfare check” to “disturbance call.”
That same thing happened here in Harnett co and ended with Livingston being shot killed because he closed the door on the deputy’s foot !
The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated, and no Warrants shall issue, but upon probable cause, supported by Oath or affirmation, and particularly describing the place to be searched, and the persons or things to be seized. UNLESS “SOMEONE” MAKES A CALL!
Easy win 42USC1983 case. Any lawyer would take it. An officer placing their foot past the threshold on hearsay is trespassing. Investigating on hearsay does not allow them to barge in to somebody’s home. Prosecutor should also charge them under 18USC241 and 18USC242.
This is why a good relationship with the community is important. People dont even respect you or trust you enough for a simple welfare check. You have no one to blame but your own organization!
I found asking them to repeat their lies again and again and again works quite well.
If he was at the cops house like this with his foot in the door, that’s not trespassing. Good to know
Heads up all. The reason why cops place their foot in between the door is for (2) reasons:
Reason #1 – In the event you close it they can claim you assaulted them in the event they have no probable cause or basis for being at your residence.
Reason #2 – Keeping the door open allows them to look inside and smell and observe the activity within your home to establish probable cause.
when will we say enough is enough , a neighbor can call and say what ever they want and cause this to a family enough already
This clown should be sued for saying there is exigent circumstances OR they would have entered already. It only has force of law if there is immediate danger to someone, to stop destruction of evidence or to chase an escaping offender and thats it. Despicable and unlawful and I hope he sues these fools and thugs with badged. What has happened in the last 9 months?
most cases, police officers probably cannot enter a home without permission during a welfare check. However, if they feel that they have reason to believe that someone is in danger, and/or that a crime is being committed in the home, then they can typically enter the home without permission. Pretty sure none of this has happened they need a warrant what the hell is wrong with these cops?
They were just biding time for authorization to enter from a supervisor. They were unsure if they had probable cause enough to enter, so they figured they’d just trespass “a little bit” and to keep the door from closing until they could get authorization that they had enough probable cause. Once they got the OK, they just blew in. That authorization “qualified” their “immunity.”

 

 

 

 

What Rights Do You Have To Stop Cops From Entering Your House – Warrants, Consent, Exigency

What Rights Do You Have To Stop Cops From Entering Your House – Warrants, Consent, Exigency

When can Cops enter your home? What cops use to enter your home. I discuss how Gov or Law Enforcement can gain entry to your home and under what circumstances they can enter your home without your consent or approval.

I have a video about why you should not talk to cops that I encourage all people to watch. Nothing good comes from talking or cooperating with the Gov. Once Gov is involved it can only down hill from there. Once Gov gets an inch of control they will always want more and you will end up playing catch up and wishing Gov was never invovled. Here is the link to that video:
http://www.thinklikeahorse.org/All_Ab…

I have said many times when I was a cop – It is better if you don’t make a statement, don’t talk to me and remain silent. There is an attitude that if you remain silent or refuse to talk, then you must be guilty or have something to hide. In the current adversarial relationship between citizens and the Government, protecting yourself should be your primary concern.

Nothing you say can help you and can only be used against you. Police work for the Government and politicians, they have careers to protect, policy to follow, they make mistakes, they misremember things, some things are accidentally left out of reports, their memory is not perfect and many other factors can come into play and you may become collateral damage during an investigation. The old saying, Truth is what the cop puts in the police report, is true to many.

Any lawyer will tell you DO NOT talk to the cops or give any statements. Anything you say can be misunderstood, taken wrong, repeated wrong, remembered wrong, important parts can be forgotten, confused or intentionally withheld by the Government, especially if it hurts their case.

This video is a Lawyer that explains this very well. Invest 20 minutes and watch this video where this experienced Lawyer gives specific reasons on why you should not talk to the Police.

Comments

As a law abiding citizen I appreciate the information but the behavior you described of cops today is very concerning. What happened to protect and serve. You see more and more police departments looking more and more like military operatives and that is scary even as a law abiding citizen.

 

 

If this is true–that cops can create exigent circumstances on a whim and thus can break in without consequences–the system needs to CHANGE. One of the important critical costs of individual liberty that an individual having a right to be secure in his person is that COPS DO NOT HAVE THE AUTOMATIC RIGHT TO WIN unless they can prove it to a judge who would provide a warrant. A person’s home is his sanctuary. Period. If cops want to snag someone who’s in his house and don’t have a warrant, starve him out. Don’t break in. If someone’s life is in danger, cops don’t have–that is, should not have–the limitless power to resolve the situation, not at the cost of one’s right to be secure. To argue otherwise is to give absolute power to a police state, which I’m beginning to realize we may have already become, rather than a nation governed by individual rights. But the greater crime is in the courts/”justice” system that have successfully absolved such tyrannical violations of the 4th amendment and given what was said in this video the backing of precedent. Checks and balances clearly end at the courts, a tragedy that is ultimately causing the implosion of our nation. Granted, the stories this guy shares are examples of where having a police state worked out nicely.

 

So you can do nothing wrong but be a victim of impatient cops attending a bogus call, not even get charged, and still receive a record? “Land of the free” The more I learn about our legal system the more I despise it, it’s despicable and constantly stacked against the citizens. A cop will give you a record just because he didn’t want to have to justify his unneeded use of force on paper. What the hell…

 

most everything you’ve said is why law enforcement has very low respect. I had a DA tell me Law Enforcement is not an honorable job anymore.

 

“There’s a difference between kicking a door and preventing you from closing the door” that right there tells you everything you need to know about cops.

 

by the way I am law abiding citizen and a veteran … I believe in the constitution to the fullest! officers infringe on that daily! a good friend of mine that I severed with  just became a officer in texas … his class skipped over learning bout the constitution … umm… that’s an issue for me … how many agencies do that !? isn’t the fucking constitution the basis for our laws ,rights, way of life ?
Officer, what you’re saying is that police will, after violently harming an innocent person, will arrest them, book them, and give them a criminal record so they don’t look bad? That’s what I would call a disgusting and evil action.  That, and the victim of those perpetrators would also have a good claim for a 1983 suit.
Wrong house and home owner gets killed or shot and injured? In my opinion the fact that you got the wrong house means you’re wrong and completely liable for anything and everything. Period.
An attorney named Dale Carson wrote a book called “Arrestproof Yourself”. In that book he stresses that when ever you deal with government and law enforcement to ‘Shut the hell up”. To never EVER start talking to them. That they are NOT your friends. That book should be required reading for every citizen of this country. The information contained would help to put the kabash on a lot of governmental and law enforcement abuse. Most police I know are pretty good people just doing a dirty job. But I have met a few who I am amazed ever passed a psych test.
I appreciate your information, except the part where you laugh about busting in the wrong house and you told the lady to have the city pay for the damage. Disgusting! How would you feel if someone busted into your home and just said, “oops, I made a mistake. Sorry“? Yeah, that’s what I thought. This is why a lot of people hate the cops. The “I can do anything I want because I’m a cop and my union and the city will protect me” Is absolutely disgusting.
I must have been 18 yrs old and in my 1st apartment. One morning police knock on my door and I opened it, next the officer asked to come in, I complied. At that point I felt violated because behind that 1st officer was another 6 cops. They each went through all my rooms, drawers, closets, etc… I realized I made a mistake, I was young but I learned that just because I had nothing to hide doesn’t mean I didn’t have rights.
if this does not convince you that you live in a police state I don’t know what will
This man swore an oath to uphold the constitution? Let that sink in a while.
long story short…sounds like they can make up any excuse and enter your house without your consent or warrant
You should have explained how cops trick people into letting them in because the cops don’t specify what kind of warrant, a search warrant and an arrest warrant are two entirely different things. And how an arrest warrant doesn’t give any cop entry into a home unless the cop just saw the person enter the home, or the cop sees the person in the home. Cops will yell, ‘we have a warrant’, but they don’t say it’s an arrest warrant, trying to scare people into opening their door, when they don’t have to open the door. Cops rely on people being ignorant of the law, due process, procedure, etc. If cops say they have a search warrant, they have to show it to you upon request, and it has to have a penned signature by a judge, and it needs to be very specific about where and why. If it has 1 error, then it should be considered null and void.
  • I heard somebody say help so I kicked the door in.
  • I saw somebody moving the house so I kicked the door in. I
  • thought I smelt smoke so I kicked your door in.
  • It was cold outside so I kicked your door in.
Sounds like a warrant is pretty useless to me when all you have to do is make up some bull shit excuse to get in. Never ever talk to the cops they are not your friend…
>> they can lie and they ain’t gonna believe you.
80% of police work is causing people grief over b.s., to collect fines. Policing for profit. 20% is positive and necessary .
Also your “goofy” presentation style and apparently cavalier attitude toward the violation of citizen rights seems to be in line with the way law enforcement treats citizens these days: with disrespect
I love this guy’s stories! Also, thanks for keeping it real with us citizen’s who ate struggling to not offend authorities to the point of incarceration due to wounded ego vs. Expecting privacy of self and property as guaranteed under the 4th amendment.
It’s absolutely a violation of our civil rights to force entry while you wait for a warrant. A homeowner would be perfectly justified to defend themselves against such use of unlawful force. A warrant is the ONLY justification for you to force entry. An officer is sworn to defend our rights as guaranteed by the Constitution. If an officer violates that oath by failing to follow proper due process, he is no longer properly acting as the enforcement arm of the law. At any point that the officer violates his duty to defend and uphold our rights as guaranteed by the Constitution, he ceases to be Constitutionally justified in his actions, and is subject to the same counteracting use of force that any common criminal would be. We have to protect the absolute fail-safe right of We the People to use defensive force against ANY intruder who does not have a proper warrant. Otherwise, you end up with unscrupulous officers using loopholes such as the ones described in the video to enter unlawfully.
Great video and great info. The statements about the officers making decisions to cover their own butts instead of following the law and protecting the rights of the citizens are very sad but true. Also the statements about the cops having a chip on their their shoulder for anyone you does not follow all their “orders” whether those orders are lawfully given or not. People with that sort of ego should not be given a badge and gun. I think we are all going to have to start wearing body cameras to have evidence when these behaviors happen. Unfortunately, it is too easy for an officer to lie about what happened to make it sound like he was right. The DA and the judge will tend to believe him, not the citizen. So the citizen gets screwed.
Well since everyone is sharing, I guess I should too… I lived in Hamilton Ohio with my wife and first child. I was playing on my Xbox 360 and had been for about 2 and a half hrs and suddenly heard someone talking at my window,” are you sure? This guy is sitting here playing a video game.” I instantly tensed up not knowing what was about to happen. I then heard a knock at the door and got up to go answer it. I asked through the door who it was and they said HPD can you open the door so we can speak with you for a moment. So being only 19 at the time I was unaware of my rights regarding entry to my home, I opened the door to have a word and was instantly bulled back by a police officer and pushed on to my ottoman and told not to stand up while being held at gunpoint. 6 other police officers rushed in behind him in swat garb with assault rifles and started searching the house. I asked what was going on and the on who was standing over me with his pistol told me they received a call that a woman was being held hostage by a man with an assault rifles, then he asked me if I had any firearms and if there was anyone else in the house. I told him about my dad’s shotgun in the next room in a locked case and that my wife and daughter were upstairs sleeping. Two officers then went upstairs to wake up my wife and daughter to “make sure they were ok” then promptly left. If that isn’t messed up and illegal idk what is. Note: this was probably around 2-3 am
We’ve investigated ourselves and found no wrong doing.
What about the classic “You open the door and the cop sticks their foot in the door so you can’t close it, tactic.” Why did you leave that part out?
“I smell marijuana.” How does someone overcome this since cops are allowed to lie?
>> Cops are not allowed lie about facts that develop their PC.
>>  @S Campbell  But, they do.
At the beginning you list only 3 ways a cop can enter someone’s house. You left out the one most often used.
COERCION
coercion noun plural noun: coercions
The practice of persuading someone to do something by using force or threats.

>> @Ricky Mellottsr  “either let us in now or we are going to come back with a warrant. if you make us get a warrant you are going to make us mad. when we return with that warrant we will search and destroy your property.” and they will destroy everything.

I appreciate straight-talkers, regardless of what they’re saying or their message. Thank you for your prospective, insight, and this conveyance. It was informative and clear.
So the key is too keep them off the property and keep the door closed. Also by federal law cops cuffing and not arresting you is a battery. Don’t believe me, ask a lawyer. He is also just admitted HE IS A DIRTY COP by saying he books people that he knows haven’t committed a crime and seeing other do so because he and them don’t want to have to justify their use of force. He is exactly what’s wrong with the cops in the US.
Thanks for your information and it’s pretty accurate as far as I can tell. You at least seem like a stand up guy and sincere on your points that are well taken. Nowadays the disconnect comes in when cops over-step their bounds then double down with petty retaliation tactics.THEN the citizens seem to have NO recourse when it’s plain that the cops were wrong and it’s even plain that the “revenge” tactic was done for obvious reasons. Plain and simple fact is ordinary citizens do not like being treated and talked to like they are ALREADY in prison. (Very unprofessional) All due respect to the job, but not to some of these bullies and thugs that we ALL know are out there. Thanks in advance for giving me this platform to air my personal opinion.
In other words, The Fourth Amendment protects nothing.
How is anyone supposed to know that the person banging on your door is an actual cop?
6:59When your working on an exigency situation to get in someones house, Its up to the cop to create that exigency” I have a problem with a lot of this. It is not illegal to not answer the door, even if its a cop. Its not illegal to no not acknowledge the cops even if they see you inside not answering them. I get it, someone called…. Talk to the caller, if they dont say anything that gives exigency to the situation in and of itself then aww well. Do not pass go. Stay the fuck outta my house. I’m in here getting paranoid like a motherfu**er and your killin my buzz from these brownies my aunt made me for Christmas
I found this video to be very disturbing. Something about this video seems to trivializing immorality. First of all, a cop should be intelligent enough and careful enough to NOT go to the WRONG house, especially knowing what the consequences could be. A person could be running in their house for any reason. Perhaps a person is not suitably dressed and runs to put something decent on. Normally people (myself included) don’t expect someone to kick the door of the house so they might hang around the house looking any kind of way. As far as exigency, I need clarification. Is exigency always started for the benefit of the resident or can it be used for other reasons? A neighbor’s call might indicate exigency or not mean anything, especially when people call cops on their neighbors out of spite. The purpose of a welfare check is to benefit the person who’s welfare is at risk. The person who the call was made for or didn’t instantly answer the door should not be abused because “he’s a jerk that pissed off one of our people…” What does that have to do with the welfare of the victim? At this point, the issue is ego and not ‘serving and protecting’. This video was informative but left me feeling very sad and with a little less respect for the police, because as I said it trivialized certain things that don’t need to happen.

The Fourth Amendment:

The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated, and no Warrants shall issue, but upon probable cause, supported by Oath or affirmation, and particularly describing the place to be searched, and the persons or things to be seized.
I believe in warrants.Yet when cops use warrants and they find nothing.They should be held to accountability.This does not happen now. This is where law on warrants should be changed. Such as there should be folks there with cops , that are trust worthy to watch every move of the cops. Cops are not trust worthy. This is a added accountability for cops to try to keep them honest. If cops are caught by these mediators planting stuff. Then the cops are automatically given twenty years. with out parole. When warrants are issued for wrong address.Then these cops who bust down the door and terrorize a family.Then these thugs should be charged with terroristic tactics. These terrorist should be charged with a felony with at least a minimum of 25 years to life in prison. Cops by nature are dishonest and natural born liars. The system protects these terrorist. Warrant system and blue privelege is what also protects these criminals. Cops are not human they are animals.

 

You’re laughing about entering the wrong residence. You’re laughing about walking away as the lady is frantic because you broke her window. You’re laughing as you say you tell her the city will pay for it. Then, later in your discussion, you joke about entering someone’s residence after chasing the “large black man”, drawing your weapon and scaring the daylights out of innocent people. I’m sure it DEFINITELY wasn’t funny then. Why do you think it’s funny later? What’s funny about that?
This is the kind of logic that’s what’s wrong with this country. You LEO’s somehow believe you’re justified in your actions – despite you ADMITTING you messed up or, later, aiming your weapon at innocent people. WTF?! There’s never been another time in America where citizens have a strong dislike and distrust for police than there is now. Do you really believe talking about your past transgressions in this manner is going to help? And just because someone is a “jerk” to LEO’s doesn’t excuse illegal action. It’s this mindset that somehow, because you have a badge and you’ve been disrespected, you have the “right” to infringe on the rights of others. I do applaud you for educating the public regarding your train of thought and a glimpse into the mind of a LEO. It IS helpful. I just think you could’ve handled it better.
police don’t get into trouble anyways no matter what they do, they always get a slap on the hand .
>> not true, cops lose their job very easy for misconduct and lying, but they have be caught red handed and with video that is getting easier.
>>  even with clear video of them committing crimes like murder and other major violation of the law, some of them only get a light sentence, that amounts to nothing, and some time no jail time just fired ..

>> It may seem that way but being a cop is not easy and there is just so many laws, policies, court cases, use of force rules it is an enormous amount of information to process in a spit second that can mean you either die or live..  the courts and Gov knows if they do not give a lot of protection for the guys doing the job, then it will harder to find people willing do it.  Unless the Gov crashes the economy so the only jobs are in Gov that way no can say no or go against them or they will be without jobs..  Believe me NO cop goes to work thinking yee haw I can do whatever I want and I don’t have any worries…  it is the opposite.

Black Female Federal Officer in uniform, racially profiled by white police officer in Alabama

<iframe width=”560″ height=”315″ src=”https://www.youtube.com/embed/r9OntarZQOc” title=”YouTube video player” frameborder=”0″ allow=”accelerometer; autoplay; clipboard-write; encrypted-media; gyroscope; picture-in-picture” allowfullscreen></iframe>

A 15-year federal law enforcement black female officer got pulled over by a white Alabama cop on July 31, 2020.

 

I pray that this woman is protected from all dangers physically, financially and spiritually.
My heart hurts for Ms Jackson! I’m a white retired County Constable from Northern Kentucky. I can say that I don’t know what she goes through as a black female in this country, but I can say I have never treated anyone any different than anyone else! Hell my mother always told me that we all bleed red (some of us blue) and breathe the same air. I always taught my kids the same! I am embarrassed for those 2 deputies! God bless you Ms. Jackson and keep fighting the good fight! I know I am!!
Been there done that, 25 years in law enforcement. My Lord, how many experiences like that I had, even in my own jurisdiction.
In uniform her blue life didn’t matter because her black life was never recognized…
I’m a white man who has been in federal and local law enforcement for the same time as you and I could not agree with you more! You are 100% right and officers like them don’t deserve to wear a uniform. They are a danger to the public because they are hyped up with fear and power. We have to be respectful and treat others like humans. Pleas continue to teach new officers how to conduct themselves. Maybe we can make things better…
I’m glad this situation ended with you being safe
I’m a white male that has been DPSST certified for 15 years, my heart goes out to you. You are completely correct, and I will never understand the scope of discrimination that you have endured based on your color and your gender. Having said that, we all know that the culture of policing needs reform. And I feel bad saying reform because it’s not strong enough. There are so many good people that go into LE and loose themselves in the boys club culture of LE. I have changed my career in the last few months, I live in Portland, OR and I can no longer support the culture that LE was built on. I don’t have to tell you how laws have been designed to keep black and brown people seen as less than. I myself had to battle with the influence of the LE culture, it is real and you are completely correct. I’m so sorry that this happens to you, I am literally crying watching you speak on this because I have seen it so much and I know what you’re saying is true. Some of my closest friends are cops, and they are good people, but the culture of policing was built on discrimination and classism. I’d say stay strong but I can tell by this vid that you don’t need to hear that. So I’ll say I’m sorry, and I hope to live to see true equality.
